Summary
Analyze keywords

SelectionSK is an extension which automatically pops up the user menu with useful tools (copy, search, translation, highlight, etc.) when the text is selected with the mouse. The idea beyond the extension is that the text is always selected with the purpose, so it is more convenient to automatically popup the menu on selection rather than do it in two steps (select and right mouse click). It's easy, extremely convenient and highly configurable. Give it a try! Let me know if you want other functions added.

Note: During initialization the extension will create a 'SelectionSK' bookmark folder under 'Other Bookmarks' and populate it with search and translation urls. Please modify this folder according to your needs. Occasionally, on first installation, extension may receive doubled notifications from browser and show doubled items. In that case please restart a browser.

This's the very good, but still have bug We just need a better instruction for user to modify the extension. I firstly installed, but see it too many search engines and language tools, then I deleted. Then I tried again and discover that I could modify as I need, and Yeah!, I love it But then I found out a bug that when you need to select a big text (need to press Shift and roll down), you can't select as normal. After turn this extension off, can copy as normal
